Whether you’re running the full 26.2 miles or just attending the race to cheer on friends and family, it’s important to find a hotel near the NYC Marathon finish line. With our affordable rates and convenient location on the Upper West Side, Hotel Belleclaire is the perfect place to stay for ING New York City Marathon participants and observers alike.
The ING New York City Marathon – to be held on Sunday, November 4 – finishes on the west side of Central Park at approximately 70th Street. Hotel Belleclaire is located just a few blocks northwest of the finish line at 77th and Broadway. While the rest of the field competes for cabs and fights for space on the subway, you can loosen up your legs with a brief walk back to the hotel before relaxing in one of our Guest Rooms, Broadway Kings, Parlor Suites or Family Suites.
The NYC Marathon is the world’s largest by the total number of race applicants, offering more than $600,000 of prize money and attracting some of the world’s fastest marathoners, along with weekend warriors and beginning runners from around the world. As one of the World Marathon Majors – along with Boston, London, Berlin and Chicago – the New York event is one of the world’s premier annual athletic events, drawing a national broadcast on ESPN and media attention from leading papers and publications. The course starts in Staten Island before crossing the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge into Brooklyn. After traversing Brooklyn from south to north, the race passes through the southwest corner of Queens before flying uptown along the east side of Manhattan. The trail makes a short detour to the Bronx before returning to Manhattan for the home stretch.
Once you return to your accommodations at Hotel Belleclaire, you can unwind in your guest room with convenient amenities like free high-speed Wi-Fi access, an iPod docking station, a flat-screen HD TV and Gilchrist and Soames bath products. Finish your marathon weekend in style and comfort by enjoying a replenishing dinner on the lively Upper West Side and complimentary Gillie’s Coffee and Bromley Tea at the hotel on Monday morning.
